Economic evaluation of forest management alternatives is essential to determine the most appropriate silvicultural management regimes to follow when managing a stand or a forest. This is particularly true when the forest owner's main goal is to maximize all future net revenues resulting from a forest production process. Such gains can be accounted in terms of utility, satisfaction, or in monetary units. Because some combinations of silvicultural practices applied to a stand may result in better economic gains that common practice forest management, any new management strategy must be evaluated under economic criteria (Solberg, 1991).
